If the A/C was running constantly, even when the temperature has dropped outside, the a/c unit can freeze up. Just let it thaw out, the ice will melt. Then turn it back on but turn it on at a higher temperature. Then ease it to the lowest temperature or highest cool setting. You probably have a clogged filter in the front of the a/c unit which takes in the air. These can be cleaned.

Air flow


Sounds like your evaporator is icing up. When the air is flowing over the evaporator it cools and dehumidifies the air. That water from the air will freeze over the evaporator and turn it into an Ice block. There could be many reasons this is happening. First check your air filter, crucial that it gets changed every 2 to 4 months, if its dirty then change it. Other reasons are that the condenser and or evaporator are dirty, could be low on refrigerant. Since you say the airflow is good at the beginning of the cycle then I'd rule out the fan having a problem.

So check your filter first but I highly recommend calling a pro to check the refrigerant level.

Icing up of unit


When you clean the Ac unit, Make sure to take the Unit completly out and clean both the condensor coil as well as the Evaporator coil.
If you are able to run the unit with it out of the window. See if there are any service ports connected to the unit (Guage hook ups), or any OIL spots where is looks dark, (Checking to see) if its leaking.

Wasnt sure how you cleaned the unit, So just make sure both coils are cleaned well with water, and make sure to avoid getting to much water into the Electronics.
Good Luck!

AC V unit is icing up and not cooling.


You either have a coolant loss or an airflow restriction. If you have good air flow when it is thawed out it is more likely the issue is with the coolant charge. shut it down let it thaw completely, just run the fan turn the air off will likely take a few hours to thaw depending on how iced up it is. To adjust the coolant charge you will need a professional to come and inspect it in most cases as you should be licensed in the proper handeling and use of coolants. Good luck, bdaly1 hope it helps.

1.5T Voltas Vetris window AC. Ice formation


I think the more likely problem is that the unit is slightly short of gas\ refrigerant, which is a common cause of icing up evaporator coils and this sound you describe. First check that the air filter is clean. Another cause could be the defrost sensor is faulty, but I would think not. Some ice isn't actually a bad thing, but quite common as long as it doesn't form over too much of the coil, or get too thick.

Always wondered why there is no drain hole at bottom rear of unit, so no condensation can drip away-now I find it not cooling well and the bottom front of the condenser is iced up. What to do?


Newer models of window AC's use either a flailing fan to spin the condensate out the sides of the AC (outside the window) or the heat of unit and outside air will evaporate the condensate.

Either way, any excess will spill over the back edge, hence the reason that manufacturer's recommend that the AC be installed with the rear of the unit slightly tilted down to prevent excessive condensate (water) from building up and/or coming inside the front of the unit.

As to the icing, it could be that the unit is undersized for the space you are trying to cool and can't keep up and is running all the time in an attempt to cool the air down in the room you have it installed in. Try letting the unit "defrost" by shutting it off for awhile (until the ice melts) and then keep the shades pulled and the door closed once you restart it. I also tell people to give the AC a chance to adjust by setting the cooling temp to around 10 cooler than the present temperature of the room.

It's really hard to completely cool down a hot room all at once, so unless you're willing to let the unit cool it down in stages, it might not be able to ever get a 90 degree room down to 65 degrees in one day, if ever. Give it a try and see what happens, otherwise, you might need a larger rated BTU unit to get the cooling you desire.

Ice on the coil fins of my Window AC unit......


set your unit to fan mode only, to thaw the ice, after the ice melts, look at your evaporator coil, see if its dirty, if its dirty, then you might just need a good cleaning. if the coil is clean, look at your thermostat setting. it should not be all the way cold. the compressor would run continously and it would freeze the coil. third, the refrigerant system could be partially clogged up or it lacks refrigerant. these problems initiate freezing of the coil.

Ice maker not shutting off


The icemaker should have a bar that is normally in the downward position (ie 4'Oclock) when the bin is not full. The ice falls into the collector and pushes that bar into a horizontal position (ie 3'OClock). These instructions are normally on the ice dispenser section. If the bar is not being pushed up then the icemaker does not know to stop. My only suggestion would be to empty completely the ice maker bin and check that the bar can be pushed from one position to the other. If this happens then try turning on again. I hope this is of some if not much help and good luck.
